Beautiful. Looks like a short transparent cylinder, where the top and bottom plates consist of chloroplasts (or, alternatively, a sideview of a thick decorated with a pair of large elliptical amber jewels... :) )

Many thanks Hobbyst46
It does look like a glass jar! Came out quite well considering its size, can't wait to run across a large one.
